Hi,

Have you ever noticed that Admins and Super Moderators can edit/delete/peak everyone's messages in your forum? This also applies to Moderators for the board they are assigned.

Normally this shouldn't be a problem, but on bigger sites with a lot of Mod's it could lead to problems sometimes, so that's the reason, why i ported over Logicians vb2 hack, changed it to use actual vb3 variables and permission systems.
So great Thanks to my Pal Logician, who's intro post has been rewritten by me as well

After applying the hack default editing permissions in your board will be changed like this:
  • Moderators: Can edit everyone's posts in the forum they're assigned, UNLESS author is another Moderator, SuperMod or Admin.
  • SuperModerators: Can edit everyone's post in all boards UNLESS author is another SuperMod or Admin.
  • Admins: Can edit eveyone's post in all boards UNLESS user is another Admin
  • SuperAdmins: Can edit eveyone's post in all boards (Superadmins are defined in config.php)
So the hack will apply a "message editing hierarchy" in your board and everyone will be able to edit messages for ones who are below him and cant touch messages of his superiors..If they try, they'll get no permission page. This will apply for editing the messages, deleting the message via edit message or just peaking inside it. But be warned: messages can still be deleted via "Delete Thread / Posts" menu..

The hack is VERY EASY to install with 1 single modification and will work in any vbulletin3 versions I know..

If you install the hack, please click install, thank you..

Enjoy!

Since I seem to be having a lot better luck getting your hacks to work on vB3 than I did on vB2 (without a lot of coaching and re-modifications from you, sir ), I will give this a shot.

Yes, sir, they are. I have to admit, as first I was really hesitant to move up to vB3, but it is the best thing I ever did.

With this hack, is there a way to have it display a message instead of just the no-permissions page? Might save a lot of pms asking what is going on from other mods and admins (if your board has more than one admin, that is).

Very handy hack, especially for Mods who might not like each other very much!

My results are positive. Everything seems in order. Also people can't edit posts of those of the same rank. ie, supermod VS supermod or admin VS admin. Super admins can do anything though. I like it like this.

I'm not exactly requesting this but I thought I'd throw it in as feedback anyway: It'd be nice if there was a section where we could set up the original admin as all-powerful so no other super admins could touch him/her.

nope faranth, this is just based on post-author.
But i also have plans to port over my more functions in editpost when admin hack, and such things were possible with that hack

@Zelda: i've thought of this myself, and actually it's not hard to add (just one if clause added, but normally superadmins are those, wo can edit files as well normally, so this would be useless

hmm, it's possible of course

You have to replace the print_no_perm with standarterror and create a new phrase for this error .
But as editpost uses standard no permission i choosed the same.
Just tell your mods what was happening, it's easier

Hmm, I hadn't thought of that. Yeah.

Yay it's here! *L* I was really looking forward to this hack since I was rather uncomfortable with other admins/mods being able to edit my posts. Excellent job Xenon and Logician for the original.

*bounces*
